Island Destinations has officially launched its newly curated Travelers Collection Brochure, with the 2022 guide now featuring a portfolio of luxury properties across Europe.
The brochure provides travel advisors with a compilation of the finest hotels and resorts in the Island Destinations portfolio. It highlights over 120 luxury properties across the world’s top locales such as Maldives and the Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Mexico, Caribbean and more.
The new ‘ID Europe’ collection includes popular island destinations across Southern Europe such as Greece, Italy and Montenegro.
In recognition of the European expansion, the 2022 Travelers Collection guide features two hallmark Greek Island properties on the front and back covers, members of the Myconian Collection hotel group in Mykonos – Myconian Villa Collection and Myconian Naia Luxury Suites.
“We are overjoyed to be debuting the long-awaited addition of ID Europe to our distinguished collection of the world’s finest properties,” said Maurice Bonham-Carter, President and CEO of ID Travel Group.
“Greece and Italy were an organic start for Island Destinations and our longstanding relationships with some of the very best hotels in these sought-after destinations made our new partnerships seamless.”
Laurie Palumbo, Chief Operating Officer of ID Travel Group added: “With the pent-up demand we were seeing, we felt now was the time to increase our offerings.
“This is certainly just the start for us, as we are continually evaluating trends and looking for opportunities to expand, while remaining focused on delivering additional support and expertise to our advisors, for them to deliver a high-touch experience to their discerning clientele.”
Palumbo added that currently, requests from Australia are coming through for Fiji, Tahiti, Cabo, Maldives and even Grenada.
